It then escalates to a full blown battle with even the ladies and lords getting involved .In the end, the Prince intervened and said "If ever you disturb our streets again your lives will pay the forfeit of the peace " (If you fight again you will be killed ) The most serious conflict was definitely the scene where Mercutio picks a fight with Tybalt. Mercutio draws his sword on Tybalt. Tybalt accepts this challenge and they fight. Romeo remembers the Prince's threat and attempts to stop them, but it didn't help. Tybalt stabs Mercutio under Romeo's arm, and he dies after cursing plagues on the houses of the Capulets and the Montagues.
Occurring at the beginning of Act IV, Juliet had been forced to marry Paris, a suitor, by her father. Capulet, however, does not know that she is married to Romeo, therefore causing her to sin if married again. She became upset, and ran to Friar Laurence, believing that he could help her. Since no solution the Friar had given her could help her to get back to Romeo, she stated “‘Twixt my extremes and me this bloody knife shall play the umpire” (IV. i.
Furthermore, before Romeo attends the Capulet’s party, he says, “Some consequence yet hanging in the stars/shall bitterly begin this earful date. (lines 1.4.114-115” Romeo already predicts that destiny has already chosen the consequence if he dares attending this party, where he will meet Juliet. Their final death is the “consequence” that he is talking about and bitterness that starts the pathway to their tragedy is their first encounter, since they are supposed to be enemies. In addition, it was a destiny that the children of two families who have held a grudge for a long time, have fallen in love. After discovering Juliet’s true identity, Romeo says, “O dear account!
If they haven’t of been married would they still have killed themselves? Maybe if the Friar had of not wed them or told there parents if would have stopped them. The fight with Tybalt was what causes the banishment of Romeo. If Romeo hadn’t of killed Tybalt he wouldn’t have been banishment which would have mean he would have got the message about Juliets fake death and wouldn’t have killed himself. It was Romeos chose to fight Tybalt.
He is denying the idea completely, thinking that it would just make him realise how beautiful Rosaline really is. Romeo even risks his life to see Juliet at her balcony, and if he is caught, he will probably be killed. He is that in love with Juliet that nothing can stop him from coming to her balcony – he is fully committed to her. He will even change his name if he needs to, just to be with Juliet: “I take thee…I never will be Romeo.” Act 2 Scene 2 Lines 49-51. Romeo doesn’t want any trouble with Tybalt.
Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
More importantly, she does not love him back, which fuels his depressing mood. As Romeo describes himself as, "Out of her favor where I am in love." (Act 1, Scene 1, 159) However we know there was never a true love and Rosaline never actually loved Romeo. When Romeo talks about Rosaline he says ‘She hath Dian’s Wit’ (Act 1, Scene 1, 200). From this we know she has sworn to chastity and was never going to be with Romeo.
Shakespeare uses different types of conflict throughout the play and I will talk about these types of conflict in this essay. The prologue shows that there will be conflict in the play when it quotes, “from ancient grudge” and “where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.’ The word “ancient” suggests oldness and as it is describing the word “grudge”, which means a feeling of ill will or resentment, suggests that the “grudge” has been held between the two families for a very long period of time. The words “civil blood” makes me consider that people who are not involved in the grudge still suffer pain. This allows the prologue to give you a swift impression of what the play will be about. In the first scene, conflict is shown by the Capulet and Montague’s servants.
Examine the way Shakespeare presents conflict in a section of Romeo and Juliet. In your response make reference to other parts of the play. In this essay I will be looking at the conflict within Act 3 scene 5 of the famous play Romeo and Juliet what was written by Shakespeare. Act 3 scene 5 will be the part of the play I will be looking at in most detail, in the scene I will look at the language that Shakespeare has used and the conflict between the characters. There are many types of conflict within the play such as emotional conflict; we see this between Juliet and her parents and also there is conflict between Capulet and his wife when she tells him not to fight.
Romeo decides that whatever happens is up to fate and it’s completely out of his control. Also, after killing Tybalt, he calls himself “Fortune’s fool” and realizes he will be punished severely (3.1.142). Romeo is basically says he is a subject to the whims of fate. He thinks fate is playing around with him and not taking responsibility for what he himself did. However when he hears of Juliet’s “death” Romeo tries to “defy the stars” and kills himself (5.1.25).
